Blackburn Rovers Girls Football

For the past few weeks Blackburn Rovers have been working with our girl’s football teams to encourage participation and have fun. We were delighted to invite Blackburn Rovers player Hope Akpan to visit the girls whilst in one of their training sessions. He was a pleasure to have as he joined in some of the games, gave football advice to the girls and signed autographs and posed for pictures. The girls really appreciated Hope taking the time out to visit Darwen Vale and really enjoyed playing football with him. We have over 20 girls now regularly attending the session and we look forward to building our partnership with Blackburn Rovers in the future.
